       Second French Conference on Computational Neurosciences
     October 8-11th, 2008 Marseille, France - http://2008.neurocomp.fr

   * Submission deadline : June 3rd, 2008.
   * Registration deadline : September 15th, 2008.
   * Conférence : October 8-11, 2008

We invite you to participate to the second french conference on
Computational Neuroscience, "Neurocomp08", which will be held from  
08th to October 11th in Marseille (France). Computational Neuroscience  
the study of the mechanisms governing the processing of information in  
nervous system. This integrative, interdisciplinary approach needs the
constructive input from various fields such as neuroscience, information
science, statistical physics or robotics.

*  Main conference : October 8-10, 2008
*  Two workshops will take place on Saturday 11th.
  o « Computational Vision » organized by Pascal Mamassian and Pierre
  o « Brain-machine interfaces (BMI) » organized by Marc Maier and
    Thomas Brochier

Invited lecturers:
   * Ad Aertsen (Freiburg, Germany)
   * Gustavo Deco (Barcelona, Spain)
   * Gregor Schöner (Bochum, Germany)
   * Andrew B. Schwartz (Pittsburgh, PA, USA)

The communication proposals should be submitted in english or french as
a 4-pages extended abstract.
The submission is electronic, see the submission page below. The  
will be reviewed and the more appropriate presentation mode (oral
or poster) or possible rejection will be communicated by the end of  

Submission page : http://neurocomp2008.confmaster.net

The conference encompasses a broad list of topics, from realistic/data
related models to large-scale integrative models. The link between the
proposed models and the explanation of neuronal treatments mechanisms
should be clearly exposed.

After the conference, a separate review process will take place in order
to select some of the presented work for publication (special issue of
J. Physiol. - Paris).

Student submission and early results are particularily welcome.
Free registration is possible for students making a motivated request to
the organizing committee.
